Also. Users will get used to clicking 'OK' for every document they open at work. Do you really think most users actually read those warning dialogs? I doubt it very much.

This is the same old MS way of increasing *percieved* security by making the user jump through more hoops. Trust me, those 'security' dialogs will be invisible to 99% of users in no time.
